St John's Church, Barrow Lane

Welcome to St John's Church, Charlton Musgrove! This little chapel of ease was given to the village by Mrs. Davies (née Leir), the widow of a former rector to the parish in 1877. Situated in Barrow Lane and dedicated to St. John the Baptist, it is built in a 13th-century style.

The chapel is much loved by the village and a small but committed group of Christians worship there and keep it open and welcoming for visitors.

Why not come into the cool silence and linger before God for a while, surrounded by all the prayer and thanksgiving of the past century?
